I am a retired educator who taught, did professional development, created curriculum and coached teachers in the area of literacy. Currently, I am an art student attending a local city college. I never really learned to cook and what I do know about cooking, both my husband and son (who is a professional chef) have taught me what I know.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking Asian and Mexican cuisine, although I do cook
American traditional as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, one of my favorite cooking traditions include making Christmas tamales because it involves so much family input and conversation. I also like our Easter bread pudding too. It's delicious.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs include two thanksgiving turkeys, a christmas stuffed pork loin, homemade sour cream mash potatoes, broccoli casserole, grilled & marinated island style chicken, and a tropical style coleslaw. I've also made some traditional Mexican recipes.
My cooking tragedies
I flopped making a roast beef with veggies. I also flopped making meatball soup or any type of soups.
